Benefits of Driving a 2008 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class Convertible

The two-seat 2008 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class roadster rides the line between high-performance and ultra-luxury. The V12 SL600 is especially exclusive and the SL55 and SL65 AMG versions really bring out the potential in these cars. The top SL65 AMG model is nearly twice the price of the SL550, but offers performance that can beat some exotic nameplates. Any of the models can be equipped with some extraordinary high-tech features--such as Dynamic Multicontour seats--that aren't available in many vehicles at any price.

What's new for 2008?

For 2008, the Mercedes-Benz SL-Class line is mostly unchanged. The SL550 gets new standard 18-inch wheels with a revised design. Newly available on the 2008 SL550 are Nappa leather seats. Base prices increase modestly across the line, from the SL550 at $95,300 to the SL65 AMG at $187,200.

Model Strengths

  • High performance luxury
  • high-tech comfort and safety features.

Model Review

The 2008 Mercedes-Benz SL is offered in four variants: the V8-powered SL550 and V12-powered SL600, and the SL55 AMG and SL65 AMG, both high-performance-tuned, exclusive versions of the SL550 and SL600 respectively.

2008 Mercedes-Benz SL: What's New

Source: The Car Connection

Mercedes' luxury convertible returns for 2008 with the same lineup it offered in 2007: There's the 382-horsepower SL550, the 510-horse SL55 AMG, the V-12-powered 510-horsepower SL600 and the AMG-tuned V-12 SL65, with 604 horsepower.

As before, all SLs sport four-wheel disc brakes with anti-lock and Brake Assist, stability control, side airbags, a pop-up roll bar, and TeleAid emergency system. Also standard are the Keyless Go entry/starter system, a heated steering wheel, and corner-illuminating fog lamps.

For 2008, new 18-inch five-spoke wheels are added to the SL500 as standard equipment. Customers who order the Trim Package on the SL550 can also order premium Nappa leather. Run-flat tires may be ordered, too.

Mercedes-Benz Certified Pre-Owned Warranty  help
Certified Pre-Owned Warranty
To be eligible for Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) status, vehicles generally must be recent models with relatively low mileage. CPO vehicles must also pass a detailed inspection, outlined by the manufacturer, which is measured by the number of inspected points.
Warranty coverage can vary from one manufacturer to the next. While most certified pre-owned programs transfer and extend the existing new car warranty terms, others offer a warranty that simply represents an additional year and mileage value. Always check with the manufacturer for the specific warranties they offer.
Common features and benefits of Certified Pre-Owned warranties include:
Age/Mileage Eligibility
To even be considered for certification, a car must be a recent model year and have limited mileage. The exact requirements are established by individual manufacturers.
Lease Term Certified
Some manufacturers offer certified pre-owned cars for lease. The length of the lease is often shorter than a new car lease, but it will cost you less.
Point Inspection
These inspections entail a comprehensive vehicle test to ensure that all parts are in excellent working order. The point inspection list is simply a numbered list of exactly what parts of the car are examined. While many inspections range from a 70- to 150-point checklist, most are very similar and are performed using strict guidelines. Ask your local dealer about specific details.
Return/Exchange Program
Some manufacturers offer a very limited return or exchange period. Find out if you will get the sales tax and licensing/registration fees back should you return or exchange the car.
Roadside Assistance
Most certified pre-owned programs offer free roadside service in case your car breaks down while still under warranty.
Special Financing
Reduced-rate loans are available through many certified pre-owned programs. Manufacturer-backed inspections and warranties help eliminate the risks involved with buying pre-owned, so buyers who qualify can take advantage of the great offers.
Transferable Warranty
When a new car warranty transfers with the certification of the car and remains eligible for the next owner, it is known as a transferable warranty. Once the original transferable warranty expires, an extended warranty takes effect.
Warranty Deductible
This is the amount for which you are responsible when repair work is performed under the warranty. Some manufacturers require a deductible while others don't, so always ask.

The MBCPO Limited warranty provides vehicle coverage for 12 months and Unlimited vehicle miles and begins at the expiration of the New Vehicle Limited Warranty
Age/Mileage Eligibility 6 years / 75,000 miles
Lease Term Certified Yes
Point Inspection Yes
Return/Exchange Program Yes. See dealer for details.
Roadside Assistance Yes
Special Financing Yes
Transferrable Warranty Yes
